Laparoscopy, which is closed surgery, has been a frequently used diagnosis and treatment method especially in the field of obstetrics in recent years. The method, which is applied by entering through small incisions in the abdomen of the patient and imaging with a special optical device, is widely preferred because it minimizes bleeding and post-operative pain. It is applied in operating room conditions and under general anesthesia.
One of the most important advantages of laparoscopic surgery is that it allows diagnosis and treatment at the same time and accelerates the treatment process. In this way, the patient gets less exhausted in the process and the recovery is faster. It provides accurate and healthy diagnosis and treatment in terms of facilitating the detection of diseases by the surgeon. In diagnostic laparoscopy, the procedure is completed in as little as 20 minutes, while in therapeutic operation, it takes a few hours depending on the type and severity of the disease.
Laparoscopic surgery yields very successful results in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as fibroids and other intrauterine formations, ovarian cysts, and infertility. It is also used for hysterectomy, i.e. removal of the uterus, termination of ectopic pregnancy, tubal ligation and tubal ligation reversal, and oncological treatments.
It is not recommended to perform laparoscopy on people with certain heart conditions, extreme obesity or being extremely slim.
